"The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes", the second book is set to be released by next year, 2014. A new addition to the cast would include the much awaited older brother of "Clary Fray" who instead of angel blood would have "demon" blood in him.

The scenes from the new book would also include a glimpse of "Idris" the world of the "Shadowhunters" who are nephilims, warriors born with Angel blood in their veins.

Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower will both reprise their roles as Clary Fray (Clarrisa Adele Morgenstern) and Jace Lightwood (Jonathan Herondale) - yet Jace is known by many other names in the books.

The question now is who will be playing the role of Clary's brother-who is angelic in beauty yet evil inside and would also look much like their father Valentine, which is played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, father of Clary and Jonathan.

Jonathan Christopher Morgenstern is still being talked over by the producers of the franchise and they want to get him exactly as portrayed by author of the book Cassandra Clare. Many have expressed their views that actors such as Alex Pettyfer and Chace Crawford would be much suitable for the roles. However, as in the case of looking for the perfect "Christian Grey", looking for an actor to best play the role of "Jonathan Christopher Morgenstern" would mean he should not be affiliated with any other shows.

The movie, "The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes" is to start filming in 2014 and they are trying to make it more understandable by fans of the book. A number of fans who have seen the film were not quite pleased with the first film.

There will definitely be another movie, "City of Ashes" but this has yet to be announced.

The latest book in "The Mortal Instruments" which is "City of Heavenly Fire" is said to be the last book for the Mortal Instruments series and will be released this year 2014 for all fans to enjoy the love between Clary and Jace.
